Sponsor will announce the winners on Twitter and Instagram within one (1) hour of the random drawing. Additionally, Sponsor will either (a) send a direct message from @UofNorthFlorida to the potential winner’s Twitter and/or Instagram account used to enter the Contest with instructions on how to claim the prize or (b) will send an e-mail message to the potential winner’s e-mail address used to enter the Contest with instructions on how to claim the prize. In order to receive a direct Twitter and/or Instagram message from Sponsor, you must (a) be following @UofNorthFlorida and (b) have your account settings set to “unprotected” and/or “public.” If a potential winner does not respond and comply with the instructions in the direct message or e-mail message within two (2) days after Sponsor sent the message, entrant will forfeit the prize and Sponsor may award the prize to an alternate entrant. Except where prohibited, a potential winner may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release. Winners must accept prizes as specified by Sponsor and on dates designated by Sponsor, or prizes will be forfeited. Prizes cannot be assigned, transferred, or substituted except by Sponsor who may, at its sole discretion, substitute any prize with one of comparable value if the advertised prize becomes unavailable for any reason. Taxes on a prize are solely the responsibility of the winner. The odds of winning depend on the number of Entries received.


7. CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION: Participants agree (a) to these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor which are final and binding, (b) that Sponsor, its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, advertising and promotion agencies, and all of their officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents will have no liability whatsoever for, are released and shall be held harmless by participants against any liability for any injuries, losses or damages of any kind to persons, including death, or property resulting in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from acceptance, possession, misuse or use of any prize or participation in this Contest or Contest-related activities or use of the Entry and (c) except where legally prohibited, winner grants (and agree to confirm that grant in writing) permission to Sponsor and those acting under Sponsor’s authority the right to the use of his/her name, photograph, likeness, voice, image and biographical information and statements and the Entry for advertising, trade, publicity and promotional purposes without additional compensation, in all media now known or hereafter discovered, worldwide and on the Internet and World Wide Web, without notice, review or approval.


8. GENERAL PROVISIONS: Neither Sponsor nor its agencies are responsible for not receiving entries, no matter what the reason even if known in advance, or other errors of any kind whether human, mechanical, electronic or network or the incorrect or inaccurate capture of entry or the failure to capture any such information. Persons who tamper with any aspect of the Contest, as solely determined by the Sponsor, or who attempt to participate with multiple email addresses and/or Twitter and/or Instagram accounts or under multiple identities will be disqualified. Any use of robotic, automatic, macro, programmed or like entry methods will void all such entries and disqualify any entrant using such methods. Should any portion of the Contest be compromised by virus, worms, bugs, non-authorized human intervention, technical failures or other causes which, in the reasonable opinion of the Sponsor, corrupt or impair the administration, security, fairness or proper play, or submission of entries, Sponsor reserves the right to suspend and reschedule the Contest following correction of the problem. In case of dispute, the authorized subscriber of the email account used to enter the Contest at the actual time of entry will be deemed to be the participant, and must comply with these Official Rules.
